Who would have thought that there was a job left in this economy? Apparently babysitting teenagers is NOT a high priority position (Maybe it's the lack of benefits? Or the possibility that you will not have a job every day? Nah... probably just the dealing with teenagers part) because I was hired to be a substitute teacher for a nearby public school system. Woohoo!

Now we can have a countdown to when Abbie can finally start working! (See above.) Cha-ching!

My backup plan was to get myself a position at Ann Taylor Loft. (Believe it or not, they were also hiring, at least as of a few weeks ago.) 1) I could sell their clothes to anyone, I am a great salesman of things I believe in; 2) I already wear Ann Taylor Loft every day, so it's not like I would have needed a whole new wardrobe; 3) Can you say employee discount? Cha-ching, cha-ching! I would have walked out of there with a net gain of zero in the bank account, but some rather lovely additions to my closet.

You know what? I actually think I've seen a bunch of places hiring around here. Maybe the problem with the rest of the country is that all of the government's money is going into the defense industry, which is basically here. So... if you're looking for a job, maybe you should move to Maryland/DC/Virginia! And be my friend!

And on that positive note, here is a lovely video of a Democrat making a fool out of herself. What better way to end a happy post?

Congrats on the job! Maybe you can still get the job at Ann Taylor Loft and use that $ to add to your wardrobe and use the $ from subbing to put in the account :)

Yay! I'm so happy you found a job. Subbing is great. It will certainly keep you on your toes.

Can't wait to see you soon!

Nice work on the job! I posted that video on my facebook recently. She did make quite a a$$ of herself.

Thank you. I needed that laugh. Now on to more important matters:

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU GOT A JOB!!!!!!
Today must just be a good day, Carl has to take a drug test tomorrow, and then he has a job that'll cover our bills! WOOHOO!

Ann Taylor woulda been awesome... but at least the sub job will be rather stress free!
